Jerrycan 1942

Recommended Posts

Hello,
Could you help me identify this color marking, on this jerrycan from 1942. The very attenuated bands for some, seem white, the numbers are: 43295.
Thanks for your help.
Laurent.

Hi from France :)

According to the Ben C. MAJOR book (Unit Serial Number - 1st US Army build-up priority tables - List A - D Day Normandy + 1 through D + 14) those markings are for :

Company M - 109th Infantry Regiment - 28th Infantry Division

Pretty cool item

If only it could return in Normandy (at my home for example :rolleyes: )

Regards

Gilles
